Wet Process Lab – Fluid Bed Coater

wetlab1OPF Enterprises now has an Applied Chemical Technology‘s Laboratory 100N Fluid Bed coater

that offers the perfect solution for testing or developing ceramic products and processes. This

versatile unit is easy to use and suitable for many ceramic applications including ceramic

proppants.

In our lab you can easily experiment with fluidization velocities, operating temperatures, coating

methods, drying and cooling curves and other process variables. The Laboratory Fluid Bed is

also ideal for batch production runs and product evaluation. In addition, all data is directly

applicable for scale up to industrial fluid bed systems.

 

Applications

Act’s Laboratory Fluid Bed is ideal for a wide range of process applications, including:

  • Coating
  • Agglomeration
  • Heating
  • Granulation
    • Drying
  • Cooling

dryingDrying

Heated air passes through the fluidized particles to remove moisture rapidly and efficiently. The process can use lower temperatures than conventional methods.

 

 

granulatingGranulating

Spraying a binding agent into a fluidized powder produces particles with very uniform size, weight, and shape. The fluid bed can also be used as a dryer once the desired particle size is reached.

 

 

coatingCoating

Liquids can be easily sprayed onto fluidized particles from the top or bottom, producing an even and uniform coating.
